PhD graduate assistantship in Environmental Management

Applications are invited for a PhD graduate research assistant in the
interdisciplinary Environmental Management program at Montclair State
University (MSU), Montclair, NJ, USA. The goal of the PhD research will be
to combine computer models of fluid flows and mathematical models of
transport and control to find optimal control strategies for autonomous
ocean vehicles, which will be modeled both as inertial and non-inertial
objects. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation and is
led by Dr. Eric Forgoston (Department of Mathematical Sciences at MSU) in
collaboration with Dr. Lora Billings (Department of Mathematical Sciences
at MSU) and Dr. Philip Yecko (Department of Physics at Cooper Union, New
York City, NY, USA).

Applicants who have obtained a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree with a strong
background in mathematics, physics, or engineering, and who are interested
in earth and environmental sciences are encouraged to apply. Applications
are welcome from US nationals as well as from overseas candidates. The PhD
research assistantship is held in the interdisciplinary Environmental
Management doctoral program, and therefore the applicant must fulfill all
requirements for acceptance to the PhD program (
http://www.montclair.edu/csam/environmental-management-phd/). The PhD
graduate research assistantship provides a stipend and covers the cost of
tuition. Employment and matriculation to the PhD program is expected to
begin in September, 2015 or January, 2016.

Applicants should send a cover letter detailing specific interests in this
research area, a CV, a copy of grade transcripts from any prior education
(BS, MS, or equivalent), and the contact information (name and email
address) of three recommenders. Application materials should be emailed to
Dr. Eric Forgoston (eric.forgoston at montclair.edu).
